About the palette I had "formal instructions" from Canonical, due to patent issues. It seems that Lubuntu name was registered by "the Company" and, in prevission of these kind of things (even when Kubuntu wasn't released), they published a hard graphical guide about "possible derivatives". They didn't know that Ubuntu "exploded", a few months after with customized distros.
But if we want to keep in the family, and not being an "orphan" distro, we have to keep their recommendations. But the additional artwork items are another things. You can put a green wallpaper, or purple, or even black, while keeping design lines and respect to the original artwork (Lubuntu is a derivative from Ubuntu, and its artwork is a derivative too). And sorry, yes, we're in Artwork Freeze as well as Feature Freeze status. The popularity about a theme was made through the mailing lists, extracted from the Lubuntu Artwork Wiki pages. If anyone doesn't trust me or Julien Lavergne (and others) about the decission, I can make a list with names and their votes, received in my inbox. Anyway, the poll is (now, at the end): Dark blue / Light blue: 15 votes Light blue / Lime green: 9 votes
